I usually get bounces off my head somehow. But most of the time it breaks (285fps and XO Spectrum paint)

the bottom part of sly profit generates a lots of bounces(as far as it goes i'm almost certain that its about 50%\50%)

If people are getting bounces from your paint; cool it. Put your pods of paint in the fridge for 20 minutes before you play or keep them in a cooler, they'll break on anything. If you cool them way too much they might dimple, keep that in mind.

Never freeze balls bro, it's a bad idea. Paintballs aren't designed to be frozen and shot at people.

I never said anything about freezing them. Paintballs don't freeze anyway, they just get gummy. Putting paint in the fridge for 20 minutes at 37F will not freeze them..

I understand that you want to make the shell more brittle, but I think that is a bad idea. Bounces are just a part of the game. I use markers that can shoot brittle paint because I got fed up with bounces from paint that my Tippmanns could shoot.

I use really thick shelled paint (Draxxus Midnight) and sometimes it doesn't break on straight shoulder hits, arm hits, and even a stick once. Shoots straighter than i can point though, so its what i use at $35 a case.

Getting bounces is great when it happens to you but it sucks when you hit someone and it bounces. I wonder I'd anyone has ever done tests on pads to see how well they stop paintballs from breaking on them.

I don't know, it seems like whenever I get hit by a bounce it feels like I got hit by a brick. Sometimes I think I would prefer to just take the break.

I got hit straight on the lens of my mask once, bounced right off. Funny thing is, my field uses evil balls

I played on MLK day and it was 8 degrees at the start of the day. One game, A kid told me I hit him in the head 5 times and they all bounced. Ref was right behind him and saw them all. Kid told me he wished they all broke(or at least the first one anyway.

The last time I played was indoor field paint only. About 40% of anything that hit me bounced. All over, arms, chest, legs and one gun hit.

I guess it mostly depends on paint and where you get hit. I've used monster balls a few times and the only way I got someone out was if they got tired of getting hit. Those things don't break at all.

I have heard that too, monster balls are not something to be played with.

I was out for a private party at cpx and our party decided to play against another party.they had about twice as much but it was there first time and everyone was using 98s except for a few people on there team had speedball guns so we start winning and the ref grabs one of the guys guns that in the dead box and starts shooting at me. I wore baggy stretchy shorts that day and the balls bounced off my shorts right under my crotch

I wonder if you can get a bounce (or free balls) from a Afro? It's like a natural ball catcher!

I have had only 2 times getting a ton of bounces. Those were against some milsig guys. They were using really hard paint. I was shot 3 times in my knee pads, all bounced.(yes my knee has a habit of sticking out.) Then I rushed a guy in a bunker and he shot me 4 times from 3 feet away 3 bounced. (the game we played that time arm hits didn't count) Then I shot him and he freaked out, no paint though.
